Atheys Dene

The aptly named Spectacular Rosegill

The poisonous Sulpher tuft

Spent the morning in the woods around Morpeth. Large tit flocks forming with many Goldcrests among them. Jays and Nuthatches are quite numerous in these woods and a nice flock of Bullfinches were a delight. A Green woodpecker was calling from Atheys Dene. Yesterday I was at Widdrington tip but not a lot to report except good numbers of Skylarks and a single Snipe. At Druridge the Glossy ibis was on the main pool and two Otters were putting on a good show. No sign of the Buff breasted at Cresswell but hundreds of Pink footed geese. At least 30 Knot were on Cresswell beach.
